Failed to create Web Browser ... Ubuntu 16.05 LTS

Topics around the use of the VS Code & Eclipse plugins

Tue Sep 13, 2016 2:52 pm Change Time Zone

I was trying to run the Eclipse IDE under Ubuntu … My cluster ran and I could execute jobs … and could review them in the Firefox browser via the ESP … but couldn't see much of anything in the IDE.

Any page with web-like content said ... “Warning: Failed to create Web Browser, see Error Log for further details."

My HPCC server version was 6.0.4-1 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS ... I was running Eclipse Neon.

The Eclipse ... Window | Show View | Other | Internal Web Browser ... dialogue contained messages including ...

"Embedded browser not available"

"The embedded browser widget for this editor cannot be created. It is either not available for your operating system or the system needs to be configured in order to support embedded browser."

"...=mozilla are not supported with GTK3 as XULRunner is not ported for GTK 3 yet ..."

With help, I found the solution to this problem was to install ... libwebkitgtk-3.00 ... and the problems appeared to be solved.
